Sort of a funny story. Was looking for a Ga-100 in the mall before I ordered the all black version online. None of the "fancy" stores had them.

Went into the bay and found a GW7900b and a Black/Red Ga-100 in the display and a 25% off sign on top.

So I had her bring them both out, the price said $119 on each. I had her double check, she said the GW7900B was actually $178, but the price check slip she showed me had "buy one get one 50% off" printed at the bottom.

I asked her if I bought both watches what is my total price.

I ended up with 25% off the Ga-100, 50% off the GW7900B.
And she handed me a $25 off coupon that I used for the purchase.

Total price for the Ga-100 and GW7900B was $163 CDN !

I'm sure there were at least 2 screw ups in the process but I'm thrilled to have these two new watches.

This was at the Bay at Market Mall in Calgary.
I know there are no more 7900b's in Calgary though.

The 7900b is taking a long time to get fully charged
I can't get it past medium yet, but I haven't had
a sunny day yet to leave it outside or on the window
sill.

I love the 7900b. The ga-100 was mostly for the size
and the laptimer. If the 7900b had a lap timer
instead of the moon/tide graphs then I wouldn't need
another g shock. Oh well I pretty much got 2 for 1.

I got to check that out myself. There are two Bay stores within my reach here in B.C.- one at Metrotown in Burnaby and another in Downtown Vancouver.
